Economist Misses Its Target On Gun Control

posted on April 7, 2015

A recent attack piece on the NRA and American gun culture in the Economist goofed by attempting to bolster its argument with debunked statistics manufactured by the anti-gun Everytown group. The number of “school shootings” cited in the Economist piece actually included everything from accidental discharges to crimes that took place entirely off of school grounds. The story also targeted opposition to BATFE’s M855 ammo ban, recycling old arguments about a “cop-killer” round—without, of course, noting the Fraternal Order of Police’s opposition to the ban.
